January 6, 2019

UU 101, 201, 301, and 401

SERVICES AT 9 AM AND 11 AM

Rev. Meg Barnhouse, preaching

Dorothy Steinicke, Worship Associate

The Rev. Meg Barnhouse, storyteller, singer, songwriter, former South Carolina NPR host of “Bubba-Free Radio,” brings her own unique perspective on the journey of living Unitarian Universalism out loud. This is a service told in original stories, songs, and preaching sure to amuse, inspire, and open your heart.

Plan to stay after the service for Part II of our church history workshop: 2010 to the present. A year ago we held Part I on our first 80 years as a congregation.

Can I Get a Connection

SERVICES AT 9 AM AND 11 AM

Robin Stillwater, preaching

Rima Snyder, Worship Associate

Loneliness is a huge mental health problem. Many adults say they want to feel more connected to those around them. In a world that offers so many ways to connect, our church community can offer the kind of connection that helps us be in deep relationship with each other. This is also “Bring a Friend!” Sunday.

Heart and Soul Service: Possibilities

SERVICES AT 9 AM AND 11 AM

Rima Snyder, leading / Robin Stillwater, Worship Associate

Our contemplative service, with both silences and sharing, is held each month on the Second Sunday evening. The theme is “Possibilities.” Can you come up with three ideas for things you have never done, or haven’t done for a long time, that would widen your perspective? Or things that would stretch your imagination, or be fun?

Strange Fruit

SERVICES AT 9 AM AND 11 AM

Rev. Greg Ward, preaching

Abby Arnold, Worship Associate

Last year, anti-racism activist Bryan Stevenson – with allies at the Southern Poverty Law Center – raised money and opened a new museum in Montgomery, AL, that chronicles the personal, historical, and violent narrative of our relationship with race in the US. This service is based on a slam poetry-style sermon telling the story of how the black experience moved from slavery through Jim Crow reconstruction, through Civil Rights, and right into a new era of systemic White Supremacy, tracing  our progress through photography, stories, and music. The service will also pause to install new Worship Associates.

Are YoUU a Superhero?

SERVICES AT 9 AM AND 11 AM

Kathleen Hogue, preaching

Leon Henderson-MacLennan, Worship Associate

“I’m here to fight for truth, justice and the American way.” – Superman

Is Superman a Unitarian Universalist? Who are our superheroes, and just what is it that makes one a superhero? Is it possible that as we work together to create a world that turns aside from racism, violence, dehumanization, and disregard for suffering that we, too, can be superheroes?
